Andres Viyena (registered name Viyena), the main gun of KB Insurance, put a dagger at her parent team, Korean Air.
KB Insurance defeated Korean Air with a set score of 3-0 (25-18 26-24 25-19) in the men’s round 4 home game of the ‘Dodram 2022-23 V-League’ held at Uijeongbu Gymnasium on the 24th.
Vijena’s performance was outstanding. She bombarded the court with 26 points, including two serve aces and one blocked. Her attack success rate also reached 59%.
It is Viyena, who once again showed the image of commanding the V-League at Korean Air.
Vijena was in the top ranks throughout her offense, including scoring (786 points), 1st in overall offense (56.36%), and 2nd in serve (0.56 per set) for Korean Air in the 2019-20 season.
Villena smoothly adapted to the V-League with her bouncy jumps and quick attacks despite her modest height of 194cm. Her performance, including two round MVPs and six triple crowns, earned her the Season’s Best 7 Apogee Spiker.
Villena signed a new contract with Korean Air and welcomed the 2020-21 season in the V-League, but was unable to show off his performance due to a knee injury. Vijena, who had not been on the court since the middle of the second round, eventually left the V-League after being replaced by Yosbani Hernandez (Cuba) as the injury prolonged.
Wearing a KB Insurance uniform as a substitute for Nicola Melanac, Villena showed off her strength by scoring 33 points in the V-League return match against KEPCO on December 27 last year.
Villena met her former team for the first time since returning to the V-League.
Director Hu In-jung believed in Viyena’s skills. He expected, “If it is about the height of Korean Air, even Viyena can pass.” 스포츠토토
He did not let down his vigilance even by the enemy commander. Head coach Tommy Tillikainen said, “We had a lot of discussions with the players,” and “KB Insurance has become stronger with Vijena’s joining.”
Vijena proved his worth on his court. After giving the team the lead with a quick open attack in the first set 3-3, the gap widened to 9-3 with a strong serve and back attack.
Viyena, who played an active role with 8 points including 2 sub aces in the 1st set, also flew with a 56% success rate of 9 points in the 2nd set.
His performance continued. Viyena blocked Lee Joon’s attack in the 4th set 23-18, putting the team on the match point.
KB Insurance won a valuable victory in the home without being vigilant until the end.
This is KB Insurance’s first Korean Air victory this season. Korean Air suffered its second shutout loss of the season.
